OI 41 Drive Trane Growling
Hello. First time on Sail Net.
Bought a project boat a few years ago. This year I replaced the Ford tractor engine with a rebuilt Perkins 4.108. It purrs beautifully, but when we put it in forward or reverse, it starts growling. So I hauled it out, did some unrelated stuff, and changed the cutlass bearing. But when I dropped it, the problem still remained. I am wondering if anyone has ever worn out an intermittent bearing, or had a worn shaft cause a problem, or if anyone has ever heard a growling noise from their OI drive trane.
